U.S. to replace excitation at 1,312-MW Glen Canyon

The Bureau of Reclamation has set a tentative deadline of July 13 for proposals to replace excitation systems for the 1,312-MW Glen Canyon Dam power plant on the Colorado River near Page, Ariz.

The BuRec's Upper Colorado Region Office in Salt Lake City said the solicitation (No. 06-SI-408148) would seek new static excitation systems for each of eight 165-MW generators. Glen Canyon is one of five power plants in the Colorado River Storage project.

The contractor is to: furnish drawings and data; modify the rotating DC exciter; remove and dispose of voltage regulators, generator field breakers, and associated equipment; furnish and install the new static excitation system, 600-volt busways, power and control wiring conduit, conductors for power circuits, and control and instrumentation wiring; furnish spare parts; and train government personnel in operation and maintenance of the system.

A free copy of the drawings can be obtained by contacting Estephanie Singleton, Fax: (1) 801-524-3857; E-mail: esingleton@uc.usbr.gov. Prospective vendors must register in the Central Contractor Registration system, www.ccr.gov, prior to the award.
